Grandparents are awesome and necessary and maybe even crucial to evolution

My son is lucky enough to have three sets of grandparents, and they all love him immeasurably. He has individual names for all of them (Grandma & Grandpa, Nana & GrandBob, Pap-Pap and Anya), and he relishes his time with each of them. He talks to them on the phone, sees them in person whenever possible and looks at pictures of them as I tell him stories. We talk often about how important they are in his life.…

It' raining it's pouring

We all know the children's chant...It's raining, it's pouring, everything is boring...what?  You are thinking that is not the way it goes and yet we all have had children pull the "I'm bored" card on us.  I am sure you have responded with "I can give you a chore" or perhaps you did the "With a room full of toys, how can you tell me you have nothing to do?"  One rainy day when my granddaughter said she was bored, I sat on the couch and said "let's be bored together."  At first she…

Love, Patience and Alzheimer's

A week ago, I was watching the “Sex and the City” episode “An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux)”. The scene where Steve takes his mother to the ER and discovers she unknowingly suffered a stroke that caused her to have significant memory loss, made me think of my paternal grandmother and grandfather. 

My grandfather (known as Pa-Pa), was diagnosed with Alzheimer's before passing away in 2000 and now my Grandma suffers with the disease along with RA. At her request, she still lives…

Lazy Sunday Gone Wrong

You know what I love about Lazy Sundays? Most of the time you can stay in your pajamas, plod around your house in bunny slippers and do absolutely nothing. Our morning started off that way. For breakfast I made my family some old fashioned oat meal with honey and added raisins and almond slivers for the adults. Afterwards Izzy was allowed to watch some Dora the Explora while hubby played WOW and I caught up on some blogging.…

Mother’s Day Strangers

One Lucky Mama!

A couple of weeks ago, my bad-breathing baby landed us in the Trauma Room in the Emergency at our local hospital. On about his fifth Ventolin treatment, a woman was brought into the bed beside us.

The woman was explaining her symptoms as they were…

The Hanging Carrot

Packing up, leaving the house in a cluttered disarray of wrapping paper and toy pieces, and hurrying off to the airport at 8 a.m. just before the holidays, I felt nothing but dread as I looked ahead to our day of travel.



First a two-hour car ride to Orlando where we would drop the car off and wait for a shuttle to the airport.  Once there, we would have to check the bags in, go through security, and wait around to board the plane while trying to keep two toddlers amused and calm.  The… Continue

Our Grandparents Are Our Angels

I am my mothers, still, I am very much my grandmothers child. I was willed this sense that elders are our angels on earth. I would walk behind my grandmother in the pouring rain carrying an umbrella if asked.

Random Thoughts After Two Glasses of Wine

Here are my latest wine-induced thoughts (and the unpretentious wine review to go with it).



I will start this posting with a small disclaimer: Mom and Dad I love you and I love your home. You are wonderful parents/grandparents. You did suggest I write about this... so here I go....



[This is a summary. To read more go here:…

My Alzheimer’s Experience

Last week I was flying to L.A. for a speaking engagement. As I boarded the plane, I reminded myself how peaceful the flight would be. Flying solo is like a forced holiday. Flying with my gang is a big job and one that I spend a fair amount of time dreading. However, after the experience I had on that particular flight, I realized that maybe travelling with my kids is not so bad after all.

Two rows ahead of me, in the bulk head seats, was a very elderly man who walked with a cane. He…

Paying Parent Support

With rising life expectancy, there is a good chance your children will get to know their grandparents. There is a good chance your parents will live well past their sixties and that you will eventually live even longer than them. However, with economic uncertainty, poor saving rates, and retirements that are starting to last longer than working careers, more and more people are running out of money in their golden years. Medication and medical costs associated with…

The Birth of a Superstar

50 years ago my Aunt Joan was born. Hers has not been an average life. She arrived prematurely, possibly having an unfortunate run-in with the umbilical cord on the way out. Regardless of the cause, she has had a special place in our family because she did not develop in a typical manner.

From all accounts, it was not easy in those early years. The doctors…

The Tie That Binds

Every Tuesday I do something shocking, scandalous and highly unorthodox by modern standards. When I tell people about this dirty little thing I do I usually get a weird glazed over look, followed by a slight head tilt, awkward pause and then a response of… “really?”.





I am sure you’re wondering what my dark and dirty little secret is. Cue the ominous music and steady yourself for this ladies… every Tuesday I sit down and have dinner with my former in-laws. Yes, that’s right, the… Continue

How Well Do You Know Your Neighbors?

This summer our aging next door neighbors had their two grand daughters come and stay for over two months. The oldest girl was the same age as my son, so by the end of their first day, a new friendship was quickly budding. As with most people who live in populated neighborhoods, most activities that occurred in our yard, they’re privy to them. If we were barbecuing, running through the sprinkler, eating watermelon on the deck or just picking weeds, the girl next door was quickly asking if she… Continue
